We've added a lot of standard reports that Facebook Ads shows in their Ads Manager page. Selecting a standard report will update your Columns and Breakdowns selection fields to show the columns that will be imported.

Available standard reports:
- All Levels

To further customize your Facebook Ads data being pulled into Parabola, you can select Columns and Breakdowns.
Each breakdown will also add its own column, and break each row into multiple rows. For example, you could look at your Reach column, and break it down by Campaign to see the reach of each campaign
Custom date ranges
You can either select a preset relative date or a custom date range in this step.
Select a preset relative date range, such as the Last 7 Days, to pull data from a range that will update every time this flow runs.
Select a custom period between, such as September 17, 2020 - September 24, 2020 to pull from a static date range that will always pull from that set range when the flow runs.
At the bottom of the step, we'll display the attribution window that is being used to product your report:
Using a 28-day click and 1-day view attribution window in your Facebook account's time zone.
Your Facebook account time zone will be used to determine how to pull data from your selected date range.
Currently there is a known issue in the Facebook API that has not been resolved by their team yet. It causes certain requests to timeout or error when they should work. Our team is keeping tabs on the issue and will remove this known issue when it has been fixed by Facebook. In the meantime, you may need to remove certain columns of breakdowns from your settings in order to get the step working and returning data!
